Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism
The wedding industry is huge and growing, and this means that there are a lot of experienced professionals coming from all different backgrounds into it. With the advent of the internet and digital photography combined with the demise of print newspapers and magazines, many experienced photographers have been left looking for employment in different fields.
Many of them turn to the growing wedding industry, which is seeing an increase toward larger and more extravagant events. This means that wedding vendors such as photographers, florists, caterers, and planners are in higher demand than ever. This has undeniably changed the way the average wedding photographer approaches a wedding, and largely raises standards for the quality of wedding photography.
So how has wedding photography changed today? The answer is mostly by the influence of photojournalists in the field. Wedding photojournalists usually tend to take action shots of things as they happen, while traditional professional wedding photographers will usually arrange and set up his subjects into poses. This style of photography is fading fast in the industry, and the average wedding photographer has been influenced greatly by his photojournalist peers. Photographers now will usually rather let the day’s events unfold naturally, and capture them as they go by, without dictating who should stand or sit where and do what.
This style of photography has caught on in the industry largely because it is simply very difficult to capture emotion with traditional posed photography, while an individual who is not aware of the camera is more likely to display that emotion.
